Edgar Rice Burroughs

Edgar Rice Burroughs. While parts of the book seemed overdone (ie, the Mammoth Men portion), others were quite appealing(the Gorbuses, Von's living death in the trodon cave). For me then this was a satisfying read that more than paid off when in the end Von finally fought Gaz. Surely not among ERB's best but definitely far above his worst. The first few books tell how Pellucidar was discovered and explored by David Innes and Abner Perry; they subsequently have numerous adventures and exciting experiences as they struggle to bring civilized ways to the cave people.

Mixed with the truth theytold us were strange tales of terrible monsters led by a gigantic whiteman

Mixed with the truth theytold us were strange tales of terrible monsters led by a gigantic whiteman. The imaginings of childish minds," said the professor. When the lieutenant learned of the recent disappearance of the man hesought, he expressed his determination to push on at once in pursuit;and as Professor Maxon feared again to remain unprotected in the heartof the Bornean wilderness his entire party was taken aboard the cutter. A few miles up the river they came upon one of the Dyaks who hadaccompanied von Horn, a few hours earlier. The warrior sat smokingbeside a beached prahu.

They called him Number Thirteen, the latest and best of Dr. von Horn's attempts to create life from chemicals. He found himself an almost-human on von Horn's hideaway jungle island off the coast of Borneo. He saw the monsters that had preceded him and grew used to those dreadful travesties of humanity. Not until Number thirteen met the American girl who was von Horn's prisoner did he realize how different he was from the others. Then, monster or not, he turned against his master and his "brothers" and threw in hhis lot with the girl in a desperate attempt to escape the island of terror. First paperback printing, Ace F-182
In many ways, Burroughs was a great author. He wrote many engaging adventure and science fantasy novels, and he had a strong influence on adventure fiction, fantasy, and science fiction in all of there forms. There is a reason why Ray Bradbury cites Burroughs' strong influence on his own works. The Monster Men is one of his better works, and I strongly recommend it to anyone who just wants to get a quick sense of Burroughs' style.

That said: You will not enjoy Burroughs if you can't give him some leeway for being a racist and sexist twat, just like 95% of his contemporaries. In these two areas, he is a man who certainly does not transcend his time period. Be prepared to encounter semi-Darwinian ideas about race and evolution in this and other works that are uncomfortably close to the ideas put forth and acted upon by the Nazis in the 1930s and 1940s. His ideas about women and their relation to men are about what you would expect: the men adventure; the women get rescued. (It must be said, however, that Burroughs seemed to at least get the idea of consent, unlike Robert Howard.)
Burroughs wrote a lot of fiction for the pulps of his times, and followed a formula: girl gets in trouble, is saved by the hero, is lost to the hero, is captured/abducted by an evil force, and the hero spends the rest of the novel trying to find her and thus reclaim his love.
In this story, Professor Maxon has set off to a secluded island to proceed in an experiment in hubris -- the creation of "human" life -- so that his daughter, Virginia, can marry the perfect man.
His ultimate project -- Number Thirteen -- exceeds his wildest expectations. But the other 12 examples of his work -- the "monster men" of the title -- leave much to be desired.
Rather modern issues that, in light of the recent debate over cloning, are quite topical are discussed here: science and technology, human greed, creation of new life, elements of hubris. But it is a broad canvas onto which Burroughs paints one of his more common themes.
Still, for a non-series Burroughs title, this is an enjoyable read; bubble gum for the mind that even after 70 years still manages to deliver the goods.
This book has one of the best opening paragraphs you'll ever read:
"As he dropped the last grisly fragment of the dismembered and mutilated body into the small vat of nitric acid that was to devour every trace of the horrid evidence which might easily send him to the gallows, the man sank weakly into a chair and throwing his body forward upon his great, teak desk buried his face in his arms, breaking into dry, moaning sobs."
The title of my review should tell you the basic plot of this crudely told but entirely unique novel. This is one of ERB's earliest tales and shows the fertility of his imagination in its blending of fictional concepts and the lush description of a part of the world he had never visited. Unfortunately ERB gives one of the major characters some rather annoying cliched dialogue, but at least he treats the character sympathetically otherwise and has him prove to be a pivotal figure in the story. Amazingly for a pulp serial, the most interesting characters may be the title creatures, who realize their plight as freaks unaccepted by anyone outside their group and endure many grim trials in the jungle. As with just about any ERB story, there is a love subplot which is interesting in its atypical development by the author. Of course also the flaws of much of ERB's work are too--gratuitous heroic stupidity and mindboggling coincidences being chief among them. Such is the form though, and I rank Burroughs as my favorite author. That being the case, I guess I can't complain too much since he could do far worse and occasionally did. Anyway, this is a novel different from anything else in fiction that should be read by fans of pulp fiction looking for a different take on familiar material.
Excellently written as always, but typical guy finds girl, guy looses guy, and guy finds girl stuff. Burroughs had a pattern and didn't diviate from it much. His saving grace is that he was able to vary the circumstances leading to those conditions.
very weak telling of an island tarzan. do not bother.
A wonderful tale with a rather complex yet logical storyline. Totally enjoyable. Holds your interest until the very last word.
Typical ERB! If you enjoy Edgar Rice Murroughs, you should enjoy this book as well
As many of the other reviewers noted, the premise of this story is that someone creates a Frakenstein-like man who then goes on a wild Tarzan-like adventure.

It's quite entertaining, though I thought that the main twist at the end was a let down. In any case, it's certainly worth downloading as a free ebook.
